What have you shortlisted after going to the shops? What cameras do you feel comfortable using and the ergonomics and controls make sense for you? Which cameras have you done research on and read the reviews?

Answer that first.

We are not your concierge service. At least show us you made some effort first instead of just asking to be spoonfed.

actually i was thinking of getting one several months ago, but due to some reason tat idea is put on hold until now
i remember at that time, i had 2 very possible choice..
1. panasonic gf3
2. olympus pen epl3
but then several months have passed and new models are unveiled and price also changed.
hence im abit lost here.. but i have only a budget of 600, max 650 to 700 to spare.

spoonfeed alert!

This is literally as if you want people to tell you which camera is good, but since there's no best camera it's hard for us to give you and answer anyway! go do some research, scome up with stuffs you like and all! too vague imo and just a waste of time with a post that cant even be phrased properly.

if you're looking for an entry level, maybe epl-1? it's the cheapest among m43 i think :)

if second hand maybe you will have more options! but try looking at B&S first? budget of 600 includes lens or just body? i've been looking at the ep3 but i don't see such cheap ones around?

For your budget, i recommend you look for an Olympus EPL-1 body in the buy and sell section. Now is a good time, as many ppl are preparing to upgrade to the Olympus EM-5 or Panasonic GX1, and may be selling their gears. You may also want to get acquainted with the many lenses available to the M43 family. The kit lenses, 14-42mm, are surprisingly rather good. You may also want to consider pancake lenses, such as the 14mm, $250 2nd hand, and the very popular 20mm lense will cost about $450 2nd hand.

With $600, only GF3 2nd hand.
I'd suggest you look for a GF1; G1; G2 2nd hand instead since they all have the same sensor as GF3 and are higher end cameras.

G1 goes for as low as $250 IIRC in buy and sell here.

Other than slower AF compare to Panasonic, EPL1, EP2, EPL2 are very nice for their OOC JPG and in-camera shake reduction (IBIS)

You can try a WTB EPL-2 as well. Groupon had a promo for that camera a few months back. Selling price was around $600. There might be quite a few people who want to sell off theirs to upgrade? :)

A few ways:

1. If you dont mind 2nd hand, it will definitely meet your budget. Cons will be waiting for willing parties to sell what you intend to buy. Mostly no warranty so it's risky.

2. Increase your budget and get a small E-PM1 or a value-for-money G3. (The yet to launch EM5 is the best but is way out of your budget.)

3. Buy a new set of GF2 and upgrade in future. For me I would use it as a 2nd body in future when I buy a better body.

Also you can use this website below to compare cameras:
